What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lions Gate Entertainment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lions Gate Entertainment stock:
  • 1. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We now sense a mid-teens number might be the area at which production will level off. Starz provides Lionsgate with an important opportunity to work its creative magic on a proprietary distribution channel, hoping to replicate its success for Netflix (Orange is the New Black) and AMC (Mad Men).The current intent is to debut a new 12-13 episode series each month, creating a steady flow of new content designed to entice new subscribers and maintain existing ones with several new episodes introduced each week as the series overlap counting the debut series and those from the prior two months, with all prior episodes stacked on VOD. Spending per series and episode can vary based on the target of the series in terms of attracting and retaining subscribers." (11/13/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lions Gate’s first-quarter fiscal 2019 results were dismal. Both revenues and earnings declined on a year-over-year basis. Increasing investments in areas like content, marketing and partnerships are hurting margins and are likely to put pressure on results going forward. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Nevertheless, strong over-the-top (OTT) subscriber growth and solid streaming services revenues are positives. Moreover, Starz’s high margin business model is expected to drive media segment results. Additionally, Lions Gate’s continuing partnerships with the likes of Universal Music Group (UMG) and 3 Arts among others bode well for the company." (9/7/2018)
